But then again Petsmart has a 2 week guarantee. That guarantee has saved me quite a good amount of money.

But I guess you could blame them for having unhealthy fish in the first place.

Hmm, I'm wondering if they'd replace a bulb that burnt out in ~10 months.

I'll give them a call and see what happens.

AH Supply bulbs

Have any of you had AH supply bulbs burn out on you yet?

About how long did that take?

One of my 36W bulbs burnt out and it's only been less than a year :(

Yeah I'm curious too, according to my SMS PH probe with a pH of 6.4 and a kH of 10, my CO2 should be at toxic levels.

But my drop checker reads green and the fish seem fine.

Fertilizing but poor plant growth

I'm not sure about you guys but I dose EI with KNO3, KH2PO4, and K2SO4 with Flourish trace. Sufficient lighting and ~30ppm CO2 as well.

I always seem to find that the plants pearl the most and...

It was actually 4x24!

The thing is, I think I get more light from the 2x36 than I did from the 4x24 so I'm very happy with the AH kit!

I think you might have enough. Since the WPG rule breaks down in large tanks, you don't need to hit 3.0wpg for such a large tank. Actually I think you might be on the high side for that size tank.
